Simon the Hammerman was a real person, a man who was executed in South Africa in the 1980's. He was perhaps the loneliest in history. His remarkable story suggests he was not only a mass murderer, but a saint! He has haunted me since I heard his story (which I summerize here). An unbelievable human a stunning story!
